Making Baby A, Week 7: Our Little Jelly Bean

I had my very first doctor's appointment the other day.

To be completely honest, I was SO nervous the days leading up to the appointment. Will everything be okay? Will we see the baby? Will we see the heartbeat? I was convinced that it would be a tubal baby.

The appointment went wonderfully well. As soon the doctor said, "I see one baby, in the uterus", all my anxieties melted away. She made my day even better when she showed me the flickering heartbeat on the monitor.

According to the scan, the baby is exactly 7 weeks, measuring 11mm.

Due date: St. Patty's Day, 2010.

My next appointment is in 4 weeks. At that time, they will do a full exam - hope all goes well!
